Hi guys i am after a internal Hard Drive for my Desktop and i cant seem to find a 1.5TB or a 1TB for less than £75? a few weeks ago i saw a 1.5TB for £55 which was a new unused drive but i didnt need one then such a shame, Anyway ive seen a 1.5TB for just £63 & i wondered IF i bought it would i be able strip it and use the drive inside my desktop?

The floods in Thailand have put prices through the roof.

If you see a bargain grab it.

Externals are easy enough to open up (plenty of youtube vids).

Just buy an extra SATA data and an extra SATA power cable (eg see amazon internal hdds and look at what customers 'also bought')

Note: even though HDDs have 2 or 3 yr warranty, you will invalidate by removing)

If you don't have SATA ports in Desktop you may need a SATA-IDE adapter (may come with cables)

Pardon me for asking, but if your PC is a desktop what is the point of wanting to put it in the tower rather than just connecting as an external?
